Site Hacked

Friday the 13th. This date only seems very fitting for what I'm about to show you. Back in 2009, I released my book "From the Bottom of the Bottle" on a Friday the 13th in November. True to fashion, I feel it necessary to release more Hell on that day so I made this tutorial last night to show you how to bring down and/or deface a website using a custom trojan and 5 minutes of your time.

If you've ever wondered, "Ha! How did Anonymous [or insert any hacking group] deface [insert any site they've defaced] that site so quickly!? That must take A LOT of knowledge to do so!"

Well, yes and no. Some website attacks are extremely complicated, while others are, well, pretty damn easy. This video will show you the easiest (as far as I can find) way to take down someone's site and replace it with any message you want quickly and easily.

What You Will Need

  • Kali Linux (either a bootable LiveCD or bootable USB image)
  • Internet connection
  • Weevely (included in Kali Linux)
  • A little HTML knowledge and an HTML file that you want to replace their site with.

Defacing a Website in 5 Minutes

As the usual with all my posts, here's the legal disclaimer: ONLY do this on sites you own or have explicit permission to do so. Denial of service and defacement are illegal in a lot of places. I am not responsible for how you use this information. I'm showing how to generate a POWERFUL trojan and only ONE way to upload it to a web server. Trust me, there are probably hundreds of other ways to get the file uploaded there; this is just one method.

Btw, I pre-wrote the "defaced" HTML file prior to this tutorial. Now, let's get to the hack:
